Ceylon

Up Catalog

     To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Dom Lourenšo de Almeida in 1505 or 1506 in Ceylon, Portugal issued two stamps and a souvenir sheet in 2006. One of the stamps and the souvenir sheet have a pictorial map of Colombo on the westa coast of Ceylon. I have not been able to identify the maps further.
